How to set EDX Triggers ?

What are the requirements to create EDX triggers to reload data in QlikView applications?  What all is required to create EDX triggers (step-by-step)?

I m using 11.0 SR2.I am having a scenario wherein i need a qvw to reload only if a text file exists (i.e.only if the data warehouse job has been completed).

I suppose this is possible only through EDX.So I just need a step by step solution.


Thanks,

Rohan

Re: How to set EDX Triggers ?

hi Rohan.

you can use a qvw application to check if the text file exists. You can set up a task to have that application running every 5 minutes or similar.

If the file exists, then you make the EDX call from within the qvw.

Details on how to set up a EDX call :

Rohan,

You can refer EDX trigger using qlikview management service API. on post ETL completion a file will be created and qlikview will get triggered once after the file is created in the folder.

Refer the document Using EDX in QlikView 11

and Using EDX in QlikView 11 - basic example

It will help.

Thanks.
